Google’s new Nexus 7 may be the king of the 7-inch tablet market. With a killer screen and twice the processing power of the first-gen Nexus 7, Google’s newest tablet is a great device. Many users, however, are reporting problems with the GPS function on their new Nexus tablets. Users say that their device can locate a GPS satellite with no problem and navigate them part-way along their journey… until the tracking suddenly stops and the tablet finds itself unable to locate the satellite again. If you’ve picked up the new Nexus 7 and are running into this issue, some owners have reported that restarting their tablets can help, while others have said swapping their unit out for a brand new one still gives them the same problem. Google’s aware of the issue and is working on a fix, but there’s no timetable for a fix or patch. In the meantime, if you need turn-by-turn navigation for a trip, steer clear of using the new Nexus 7.
